    Help! I lease a beautiful, amazing, calm, gentle, obedient, all around good horse. Problem is, he is an older horse, around 15, and no one has ever properly trained or interacted with him. He has no bonds with any of the other horses, and bites any horse who comes into his bubble. He tolerates...

    Full Disclaimer here, my horse is lovely. She is a lovely match for me under saddle and has yet to do anything more than a minor tantrum (I can't say I'm shocked and it is nothing dangerous, just a mare moment) when the work gets hard. That being said, I just don't feel like she is the right...

    I was so lost at first, any moment of my life I thought I didn't belong to this world anymore.:faceshot: I decided it was time to leave, it felt like nobody cared for me, nobody actually loved me. So, why would I stay? Then, I was somehow led to her, Vidra. The first day, I groomed her, she...

    So, I ride this lesson horse every week on Wednesdays. Since he's just my lesson horse, my options are very limited as to what I can do with him. How can I bond with him? I go, groom, ride, bathe, graze, then put him back in his stall. What can I do???:cry: I love him, and even though I'll never...

    I wrote this as a paper for my class in college. It has touched many hearts. It is a long story, but very good for the soul. Please read :) The first thing I saw was the road. Everything else was sort of blurring out of my vision. That was all I focused my sight on. Cars buzzing by; speeding...

    I was wanting to know how many of us had a moment buying your horse that he was for you! I was sure Tanoka was for me when I walked on over to her stall and wrapped my arms around her. She wrapped her head around me and hugged me! I knew just then she was my horse. I also got to ride her...

    What is your bond with your horse? How do you feel about him/her, and how do you think he/she feels about you? The reason I ask is, I've owned my mare for 8 years. We had good times. I say "had", because it's just not fun anymore. I don't really enjoy riding her anymore. And I don't think she...

  13. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    Hello. I've been working with horses my whole life, but I haven't trained. I was given a horse recently, a beautiful Arabian gelding name Locomotion, son of IXL Noble Express. He was trained very harshly when he was young and tore a suspensory. After this, he was sent to the slaughterhouse...

    Hi guys :) So, I'm pretty new to the forum, but I thought I'd share this dorky little poem I wrote about the way a particular horse makes me feel. Enjoy! With hurried gentleness you approach and dip your head in recognition, nickering softly, sweetly. You know me. Warm nose, pressed to my ear...
